Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear

Underwear is just what you wear under your clothes. Nothing special, or interesting about knickers and boxers, right?

Well the people at the V&A would probably argue with that assertion as they open up their new exhibition Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear.

From corsets to bras, to lingerie-inspired gowns and the humble y-front. Every type of underwear imaginable is on display along with the story behind the politics, fashion trends and social mores that shaped each of the approximately 200 items in the exhibit.

When: Sat April 16th- Sun March 12th 2017

Where: The Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL
